What man is there who desires life and loves many days, that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit. Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
100 Spring Essentials for Under $200
That’s the ad headline I saw. It prompted the questions like the following:
- If I buy only 99 of the 100 essential things, will I perish?
- Is there anything “essential” that costs more than $200?
- Is there anything truly essential that’s free?
“Essential” is what Jesus is.
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.—John 3:36
